Reporting Groups
  Description
Home Monitoring Guided OAC Home Monitoring is fully enabled and continuous remote surveillance data is available to investigators. Patients will be treated according to a predefined anticoagulation plan, which uses the total duration of AF/AFL combined with patients' CHADS2 score to determine the start, stop, and restart of oral anticoagulation therapy.
Physician-Directed OAC In Control (Group 2), Home Monitoring is active for Safety Net alerts, but the remote AF/AFL data is not revealed to the patient or treating physician. These patients receive physician-directed oral anticoagulation therapy consistent with current standards of care.

  Outcome Measures
  Show All Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Composite Primary Endpoint: Kaplan-Meier Estimate of Patients Without a Stroke, Systemic Embolism, or Major Bleed   [ Time Frame: From date of enrollment until date of primary endpoint event, assessed up to study exit, with a mean treatment duration of 2.0 years ]

2.  Secondary:   Rates of All-cause Mortality   [ Time Frame: Study duration from date of enrollment to date of study exit, with mean implant duration of 2.0 years ]

3.  Secondary:   Rate of Ischemic and Hemorrhagic Stroke   [ Time Frame: Study duration from date of enrollment to date of study exit, with mean implant duration of 2.0 years ]

4.  Secondary:   Rate of Fatal or Disabling and Non-disabling Stroke   [ Time Frame: Study duration from date of enrollment to date of study exit, with mean implant duration of 2.0 years ]

5.  Secondary:   Rate of Major Bleeding Events   [ Time Frame: Study duration from date of enrollment to date of study exit, with mean implant duration of 2.0 years ]

6.  Secondary:   Mean Atrial Fibrillation/Atrial Flutter Burden   [ Time Frame: Study duration from date of enrollment to date of study exit, with mean implant duration of 2.0 years ]

7.  Secondary:   Rate of Cardioembolic and Non-cardioembolic Stroke   [ Time Frame: Study duration from date of enrollment to date of study exit, with mean implant duration of 2.0 years ]

8.  Secondary:   Change in Quality of Life Score   [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Study stopped early when primary endpoint met futility criteria. Continuation may have changed the outcome; however, unlikely to demonstrate a meaningful clinical benefit. Interpretation of secondary endpoints should be approached with caution.
